I chose the title 2 weeks later because I realized that life goes by fast. If we are in a constant state of movement and do not stop to smell the roses, we will miss out on life. Life is not running errands, finishing papers, meeting deadlines, promotions and meetings. Life is celebrating the air, smiling for no reason, embracing hope and doing what makes us happy.
For me, that means learning to let go and say no. A problem I have struggled with for years. I cannot do everything. I cannot be everything to everyone all the time. Sometimes I need to be selfish and only focus on me. If I don't, I will lose me. So 2 weeks later, I have learned that I need a vacation and to get a grip on reality. My schedule has changed for the 100th time and it has been a big adjustment. I now have to revamp my time for family and self-care, while allowing time for my writing, studying, and work.
I'm keeping this post short on purpose. It's 10:54 pm and my self is telling me that it's time to sleep. No sleep = a cranky Kelli. Tomorrow's assignment is to find 1 rose and smell it. Translation: carve out time for you and no one else. Good night all!!
